‘Food and Appetites: The Hunger Artist and the Arts’, is a book that “traces the various configurations of food as hunger, desire, and appetite which point to the complex dialectic of consumption and consummation of ideas and forms underpinning the arts. It examines the relationship between nature and science, space and the act of artistic creation, desire and the arts, appetite and hunger.” A further description of the book can be found here, with a pdf of the contents and introduction here.
This book contains the co-authored essay ‘Something Like an Emergency’ by Josephine Scicluna and myself, that discusses the theory and ideas of process that were involved in the making of our sonic poem of the same name. One can listen to ‘Something Like an Emergency’ here: words and voice by Josephine Scicluna, piano and mix by Tom Kazas. This work was originally presented at the ‘The Hunger Artist: Food and the Arts’, 2010 Double Dialogues Conference, Toronto.
